Symbol of healthcare.

This past weekend, the house passed the Health Care Bill.  It had been narrowly passed barely getting the 218 votes that were needed for the bill to be passed on to the senate.  There was only one republican that voted for the Health Care Bill.  The majority leader of the senate is doubtful that the bill will be passed through legislation.  President Obama had promised in his speech that he is going to pass the Health Care Bill by the end of the year.  In his latest speech, he did not comment on the time frame when the bill will be passed.  It was interesting that there was thirty representatives that voted against Obama’s plan.  This may be because of where they live and who they represent.  These representatives may be more conservative democrats.  This bill requires everyone to have health insurance which will cost americans additional money in taxes.
